What isn’t a thing? Well, pretty much everything, but specifically, for this post’s purpose, ‘it’ is whatever you drug into 2017 and are allowing to have say in your health and wellness.
Previously, we talked about forgiveness and how it’s important to not have a tea party with shame and failure over something that isn’t even real. Failure and shame aren’t real unless you say they are. We know that seems a bit woo-woo, but for real, you have the power to say what is so and in our space, shame and failure are never allowed that kind of significance.
Get out a piece of paper and answer these questions:
- What does your current state of health mean about you?
- What are you committed to in the area of your health and wellness?
- Do the answers to these two questions line up?
- What are you in resignation about in regards to your health and wellness?
- What are you allowing to stop you from achieving your goals?
- What are you willing to let go of in regard to your health and wellness?
- What do you need to do to achieve your health and wellness goals?
After answering all of these, you may get to number seven and feel like you don’t know. If there is a loss of power in answering this question, we encourage you to go back to the other answers and expand on them.
Example, if the state of your health is not where you want it to be and you are committed to something more healthful and life altering, that’s a great place to start and look further. If your answers don’t line up, don’t get stuck on the why just get present to the fact that your actions thus far have been out of alignment with your commitments.
If you find yourself resigned to accept a certain weight or health issue as what is exclusively available to you, and you have a hard time answering what is stopping you from achieving what you want… There’s something to be explored in those answers.
When it comes to the last two questions, if you find yourself answering from a place of power you will feel freed by these questions. If you find yourself unable to let go of something, this is a great opportunity to dig into that and look for what you are letting that thing mean about you. What importance are you giving ‘it’. What power are you losing to that ‘it?’
All of the answers here are important because you say that are. They are unimportant because you say so. Everything you wrote down isn’t anything at all. It’s free-flowing thought and it’s just what it is. It doesn’t live in the here and now or in the past. It doesn’t live in the future or in your refrigerator. It’s not a thing.
Now, take each answer, each piece of paper used, and crumple them up into a ball. Tight. tighter. Really ball them up.
Toss them in the waste bin.
Take out a new piece of paper. Write your name at the top, large.
Look at your name.
You are real. You are what you say you are. You are whatever you create.
Under your name, write what you are committed to. What are you creating for yourself, your health, this year? What are you, what will you show up like when you enter a room? What are you walking into this year as?
Now, go and be that.
That’s what ‘it’ can be and when it’s no longer serves you, do it again.
